Mr. Patterson was my English teacher. I remember him being so relatable. He was easy to talk to and he wanted all of his students to dive deep and learn more about themselves. He had us write a fictional story with the main character based on ourselves so we could explore different parts of our personalities. He got me into journaling, and I still write today. Mostly songs and music, but I definitely trace some of my ability to tap into those emotions straight back to him.
